The population of the study is all of the approximately 60 thousand 5th grade students in Gaziantep. The sample consists of 14 793 students. Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated in the analysis of the data. In order to determine whether there is any differentiation between the obtained correlation coefficients, a z-test was performed for each region. ANOVA test was used for research questions (2-5) since there were more than two independent groups. As the post hoc test, the selection was made considering the homogeneity of the group and the equality of the sample. As there are 2 independent groups for the 6th research question, independent samples t-test was used. According to the results of the study, when the correlation values are examined according to education regions, there is a moderate and statistically significant correlation between mathematics and Turkish course achievement in all districts and these correlation values vary according to education regions. Students' success in common exams varies according to the use of technology in the classroom, the frequency of being on the blackboard, alternative activities, participation in supporting and training courses, and participation in extracurricular activities.
